What is Cloud Infrastructure?
The cloud is a delivery and consumption model for infrastructure, software, and services. Businesses can deliver automated, programmable, and on-demand access to IT infrastructure and resources – regardless of location and provider – quickly, and with minimal friction.

The Cloud in Your Day-to-Day Life
As you read this blog post, take a moment to think about your last digital experience. Is it happening right now? Was it when you streamed a video or checked your bank account online? Maybe it was when you video called your family, friends, or coworkers. After you pick an experience to reflect on, think about how it was for you. Was it memorable (in a good way)? Was it fast? Did you have a choice? Was it secure? Many of these questions are ones that we don’t pause to think about on a regular basis because we’ve come to expect them. Businesses have the same challenges, but at a much larger scale when making decisions.
